Re: Minimum Top Up Amount

 

Hello, @jojojessie

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!Smiley Happy

 

Thank you for posting your query in the Community. Were you able to top up your account? What was the error you were getting when you tried to top up?

 

There are different ways available to top up your Pay As You Go account. If you are still looking to top up please follow the link to try an alternate method. 

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin

Re: Minimum Top Up Amount

 I read that link  a little closer  since @jojojessie is not the first person to have this issue .  It's right there on the link page .   Smiley Sad

 

The ten dollar  vouchers only apply to the talk anytime plan  ....  really  ? Why would they do that ??  

Never mind  I know .  Smiley Wink

@jojojessie ..if you call in they will likely honour the vouchers  on a one time basis if you explain the situation . 

How be this time someone from Rogers post the magic phone code  to get a CSR on the paygo phone.

I see you posted what you would hear  for option 4  in both cases .... what would you hear for option one in the third menu  if you were to listen for it ? 

 

Yes. I know it's not magical   but I certainly sympathize with those  who try to  access a CSR through the phone menu for the first time  ...  the one is the choice at the end  of the third menu  and the wording (unless it has been changed in the last two weeks ) certainly makes it seem  like it's a secret . 

No one here should need  to repeatedly post the sequence  to get a csr...it should be a clear and simple option  ... I've already posted it multiple times , as I know you and Old Yellr  and others have as well .

Why does it need to be done  so often ?

Re: Minimum Top Up Amount

We appreciate you took the time to share your comments with us, @barndoor.

 

I can imagine the inconveniences caused by being unable to reach a representative, when you need something fixed about your cellphone line or account.

 

I have actually tried it again just now, and I have to agree with you on this.

The options described, after pressing 4 the second time, are the Pay As You Go section of our website and the mailing address for anything Prepaid-related.

 

I am glad you insisted and describe it in details, as it will allow me to bring this up to the attention of the appropriate party for review. I cannot promise you things will change in a timely manner, but I can definitely assure you that I will forward your feedback.

 

Thanks again and have a great night!

Re: Minimum Top Up Amount

Before I knew the exact sequence of steps to access live support I would just dial the Rogers number and keep hitting "0" to get a live operator who would transfer me. That takes longer and can be frustrating, but it's a last resort.

Exactly ... and isn't this a customer service line ?  

Does Rogers not realize that they are not the only game in town  any more and   the offering elsewhere are very competitive ... so if their customer service sucks  in any regard  ...I'm going to go elsewhere .  And customer access to accurate information in a timely fashion is customer service . 

I can only hope that they follow up on this .... because I can't imagine that it is not costing them customers judging by the frustration levels of the few customers that take the time to come here  for answers. And  what is the point of offering great promotions  to entice people if you don't apply some customer service in the RIGHT PLACES to keep them here. 

THey used to have a line where you could talk to a CSR with no automated menu  .. maybe it cost them money but I loved it ...most of the time you could have your answer and be off the phone in half the time it would take you to get through the automated menu  . But thats just me I guess !  Smiley Wink

Re: Minimum Top Up Amount

Minimum $100 top up??

 

I have a $20 talk and text plan for my daughter and it had run out a while ago. I just put $60 on it with my credit card thinking that should be good for 3 months. The person on the phone informed me that the $60 is only good for 1 month since any funds less than $100 expire within a month. I asked for a refund and they refused. So to get this straight,

if I put more than $20/month on the account, Rogers will just keep the rest? I have to keep $100 or more in it? Like a deposit? Sounds contrary to the whole idea of a Pay as you go account.

1. When exactly did this "run out"?  Days, Weeks, Months ago?

2. I'm pretty sure that any of the newer plans (like $20 talk/text) do not have any amount that rolls over into the next month. The amount you pay is "lost" every month and you need to top up (typically with the $20 that is automatically withdrawn if you use an automatic withdrawal method for the $20 or some Auto-top-up amount when the funds are close to running out).

3. The only plan that allows for a rollover of funds is the "Anytime" plan which is very old and grandfathered for some of us. 

4 I haven't actually heard about any $100 amount that allows for rollover...  Here's the contact information for PAYGo:  Make sure you call them and not the regular wireless people because only the PAYGo people have the proper information.

Re: Minimum Top Up Amount

I've been thinking about getting a 10 dollar pay as you go plan and am confused about the need for top up payments or vouchers.  I had assumed that when you pay your monthly Rogers bill you would pay the $10.00 monthly fee and if you went over the allotted 50 minutes that the extra cost would just be added to your monthly bill.  Is this not how it works?
